The Comité Colbert gathers 81 French luxury houses and 14 cultural institutions that work together to promote French Art de Vivre at international level.

This think tank recently projected itself into the year 2074. Entrusting its vision of utopia to sci-fi writers, it published a digital work entitled Dreaming 2074 and started in partnership with Tokyo University of the Arts a conversation between French and Japanese imaginations.

Together, they went on to hold a Rêver 2074 (Dreaming 2074) competition. The three awarded artworks, presented at the FIAC international art fair 2017, convey the idea of an optimistic future. They embody this unique dialogue between luxury, literature and the visual arts.
